Android was released by Google more than 10 years ago from today and since then, Android has been the most popular operating system which has been used by billions of people around the world. Also, Android is also the most developer-friendly operating system as it is an open-source OS due to it being based on Linux which is an open-source technology. Now, we have seen that many Android users around the world have been getting root access on their smartphones and this is sometimes gained as soon as they get the devices in their hands.
Now, the main reason to gain root access for many is to gain the ability to delete or uninstall the unwanted apps which are also known as bloatware. Apart from that, we can also get system-level access to different hidden directories after achieving root access.
